Salon & Spa Services – Grover Beach

When Tutta Bella Salon opened it’s doors in our area I couldn’t believe my eyes… it was a salon like those I had enjoyed living in Newport Beach during my ten years away from the Central Coast. I gave that type of full service salon with spa-like atmosphere up when I decided to return — and I frankly thought I wouldn’t have a similar experience unless I returned to a more metropolitan area for services.

The owner of Tutta Bella has truly learned from her years in the business, providing clients with friendly support staff, a beautiful space with attention to the atmosphere, and let’s not forget the shampoo experts (those girls that actually massage your scalp and make your simple haircut like a little mini-spa treat).

And yes, that is what sets this establishment apart — the “extras” so to speak. However, you can’t make a good salon great unless you have the experts to deliver the service. Monica Wilson has taken my oh-so-ordinary bob from so-so to super-cool with a razor-sharp trendy style. She also guided me through the minefields of flat irons and assisted me with the best products — she’s a product guru. I now have the BEST deep conditioner, hairspray and finishing cream. Then, when I wanted to change it all up and go super-long, she didn’t bat an eyelash, and has helped me through what can be a painful growing out experience with a professional and manageable-looking long-layered cut that my husband loves. She is professional, with reminder calls and her prices seem perfect to me — although I have the luxury of not needing color.

Next let me say that Heather Porter absolutely rescued me when stress made my normally unblemished skin EXPLODE before several important conferences I was attending in February. She used this magical blemish zapper (call her, she will explain — she’s the skin expert) and provided me with a sample of the most amazing mask that I can apply when I feel a large blemish blossoming — and like magic overnight it disappears! I have already purchased a gift certificate for an associate of mine and I look forward to a long relationship with Heather when my budget permits.

Lastly, when my regular manicurist and I have a “scheduling conflict”, Kim Killingsworth does a fantastic job and I can’t even tell the difference. Plus she’s friendly, smart and professional. If she used my product regularly I would be tempted to move my business! Not to mention she offers these amazing “mini pedicures” that she can fit into a half-hour — making it a perfect lunch time option. In fact… I think I might book one of those soon!

All-in-all, I can breathe a sigh of relief that at least one “big-city” perk that I gave up moving back to the sleepy Central Coast has materialized after all. Thank you Tutta Bella owners, Monica, Kim, Heather and staff! You have definitely stepped the local Salon/Spa experience up a notch!
